West Coast Gravl

May 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Mudslinger Events presents West Coast Gravel as part of the 10th Anniversary of the Oregon Triple Crown Series Join gravel enthusiasts in Yachats, OR to participate in either a Long Course or Short Course. The Long Course, Erik the Red Loop, is 57 miles and covers 6700 feet in elevation, which includes a ride along the Yachats River Road and a tricky 3 mile descent to the finish. The Short Course, Leif Erikson route, is 38 miles with a little over 3000 feet of climbing.  The terrain for these courses is new and has not seen many bikes. Note there are aid stations along the way. Both courses start at the Florence Events Center and riders can choose to change from Long Course to Short Course at Aid Station 1 where the course splits. There are multiple categories for registration and an award given to an overall Best Gravel Cyclist. Along with the Podium Awards there is a big party after the ride to celebrate the new gravel ride.

Yachats is a small community but has many places to dine along the coast and close to the water. For fine dining Ona Restaurant & Lounge is open, seafood available at Luna Sea Fish House, or casual dining at Beach Street Kitchen. Although many riders from Triple Crown Series will stay in Waldport, OR for the weekend since it is close to both rides, there are also many places to stay in Yachats. See The Adobe Resort, The Drift Inn, or Beachcomber Cottages.

Mudslinger Events was formed by Michael Ripley, an enthusiastic mountain biker who grew up in Eugene, Oregon. The organization brings people together to explore the gorgeous outdoor areas of Oregon. West Coast Gravel is part of the Triple Crown Series which includes several events from April to May: Oregon Coast Gravel Epic, West Coast Gravel, Oregon Gran Fondo, Sasquatch Duro, and Takelma Gravel Grinder. People interesting in participating can register for each event separately or benefit from the OTC Series Pass that includes price discounts, bike accessories, and prizes associated with the timed-event awards.
